I have a set of files I uploaded months ago, before discovering that you could have than one file per item. I'd like to combine them into a single item - I'm not sure if it's possible to do that, or if I'd need to go with changing the name of one item, adding the other files to it and deleting the remaining items. Can someone advise or help? Last time I checked only admins can do that kind of thing.

The items are:
https://archive.org/details/LnLHellcats01Chargen
https://archive.org/details/LnLHellcats02TheBeach
https://archive.org/details/LnLHellcats03TruthOrDare
https://archive.org/details/LnLHellcats04Infiltration
https://archive.org/details/LnLHellcats05AssaultAndBattery
https://archive.org/details/LnLHellcats06Gold
https://archive.org/details/LnLHellcats07PostGameDiscussion

I'd like to locate them at lnl_hellcats_01_annabelsgold for consistency with other items.

Sorry for the hassle.

items can't be combined. it is better to leave them separate since they each should have unique metadata and metadata is at the item level, not file level. the search engine uses the metadata.

These are all parts of the same recording. Any variation in the metadata is minimal and really only serves to identify the files. It would be much more useful for any hypothetical audience to have them all in one place.

in that case i'd suggest either reuploading them to a single item or adding them to one of the existing items after which i can remove the items that should be removed.

also, keep in mind that the order of the playlist is determined by the alpha order of the file names. so add 01, 02, 03, etc. to the beginning of the file names if you want to force the order.

Thanks Jeff, I have reuploaded them as a single item with a more useful name, so when it's convenient, it would be good if you could remove the original items:
